Mitsubishi-Malaysia-2016-prices

As warned in November 2015, Mitsubishi Motors Malaysia (MMM) has increased prices for its range of vehicles. MMM says that the move is “due to the depreciation value of the Malaysian ringgit that has impacted the overall cost of vehicles.”

“Despite all adversities, rest assured that MMM will continue to offer attractive on-going deals and promotions for our customers. MMM remains committed to provide all Malaysians with a pleasant ownership and value-for-money cars,” the company’s CEO Yang Won-Chul said.

Sticker prices are up across the board, with some exceptions. No change for the Mirage, which could hint at the impending arrival of the facelifted Mirage that surfaced late last year. The big old Pajero has been dropped from the local line-up, and the Attrage is now available in a single GS spec – no more SE. The 2016 Attrage GS takes on the circa RM75k price of the old SE, and we’re told that spec levels are more or less similar, without LED DRLs.

The ringgit’s dismal performance last year against major trading currencies have led to car companies increasing prices of new stock. The start of the year has brought about new and higher prices for Honda, Toyota, Lexus, Kia, Peugeot, Citroen and Audi vehicles. Even national carmaker Proton has increased prices by up to 4.6%.
